Hi all, I'm planning our family's first trip to WDW next year and could not be more excited. We are looking at early Feb (like first week) to go, to avoid Presidents Day weekend crowds. We have a flight credit that expires by March '22 and we really would like to use it. Is WDW enjoyable in early Feb, typically? What do we have to expect/look forward to? Will I wish we had gone in Spring/Summer? Thanks :)

I think that’s a great time to go! Sometimes it’s a little cold for me for the pool, but my DD will go anytime. I enjoy the cooler weather in general. My last February trip, I was in jeans and sweatshirts the whole time. Festival of the Arts is one of the best festivals, I think!

Thanks so much! I'll have to check out the Festival of the Arts, sounds lovely :)

We enjoy the early Feb time frame as well. Festival of the Arts has become our favorite of the festivals.

Packing for the Feb trip is a little trickier. My approach is to start looking at the weather forecast about a month ahead of time and start getting a feel for what we will need to pack. Then I keep an eye on the forecast to see how things are moving. Then, about a week before the trip, I look at the forecast again and make any adjustments to the list of things I need to pack. Sometimes I have to add some heavier layers, sometimes I get to remove some of the heavier layers.

That’s the time of year I would choose if I could. Now I’m looking at June or July when it’s sooooo hot, but they won’t miss school 😏

Going Feb 2022 also. We were at Universal Feb 2020 and loved it. One reason I picked it over say Sept was the low rain. The monthly rain for Feb is really pretty low.

I will enjoy having a washer and dryer in the condo. We'll drive so can bring lots of stuff. But, it will still be nice to clean clothes while there in case it stays at the upper or lower end of temps.

As a Florida resident, the ONLY time we ever go to WDW is End of January, Beginning of February or Middle of November. The crowds aren't horrible and the weather tends to be decent. (it's Florida so you never know)

It's simple, wear a sweater in the morning and long pants, and by afternoon you'll be rocking a T-shirt with the sweater in a backpack. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have a poncho.

    I think it’s a good choice. It may be too chilly to swim, but otherwise you could get lucky with temperate (70’s) daytime weather (a few years back, it was in the 90’s 🙃, but was most likely atypical). Keep in mind that is usually refurbishment time, but since they are already doing quite a bit of that for the anniversary, it may not be an issue.

    We were there just before Presidents weekend in 2020 and it was perfect! Shorts and pool weather the entire time. It's a great time to go!
